This group is for WOMEN who love the outdoors, hike, bike, backpack, climb, walk and just enjoy being outside and enjoy the company of other women.
We want to create a positive and non-competitive environment for all women to enjoy.
The Nature Girls Meetup Group is intended to be a fun group for all members. Members join the group freely and can cancel membership at any time.
We are dedicated to outdoor activities combined with fun and laughter. Join us on our weekend and weekday outings of walking in local parks, hiking in the White Mountains, snowshoeing, kayaking, biking, rock climbing etc.. Our outings are NOT hard-core, elite level sporting events, but you do need to be in decent physical condition to participate.
We will practice responsible hiking and hike in smaller groups (max. 15) to limit the impact on nature. The smaller the group the less ground disturbance and noise we will create. Those who will pass through after us will be eternally grateful.
We will stick to the rule to take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints.
Suggestions for events are always welcome and encouraged, and all members are eligible to act as Event Host for the Nature Girls after attending 3 events, and with the approval of Nature Girls organizers.
